Letter to you…

The following poem, written by a person that may never be known, is not important.

What is important, is how you react to the poem…

The poem will be introduced by a small statement, in order to ignite inspiration (assuming inspiration is flamable) in you.

The Statement: ‘Listen more to learn more.’

What is a middle schooler?

I was asked one day.

I knew what he was,

but what should I say?

He is noise and confusion.

He is silence that is deep.

He is sunshine and laughter,

or a cloud that will wait.

He is swift as an arrow.

He is a waster of time.

He wants to be rich,

but he cannot save a dime.

He is rude and nasty.

He is polite as can be.

He wants parental guidance,

but fights to be free.

He’s aggressive and bossy.

He is timid and shy.

He knows all the answers,

but still will ask “why?”

He is awkward and clumsy.

He is graceful and poised.

He is ever changing,

but do not be annoyed.

What is a middle schooler?

I was asked one day.

He is the future unfolding,

so do not stand in the way.

-By: Eight Grade Middle School Student

Are you standing in the way of the future, or standing up for the future?
